From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams <at> intel.com>
Subject: [PATCH 0/8] Asynchronous raid6 acceleration (part 3 of 3)
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.raid
Date: Thursday 4th June 2009 01:28:58 UTC (over 8 years ago)
This series covers the changes to md/raid6 to use the new offload
capabilities of async_tx.  Part 1 [1] covered the changes to async_tx
for asynchronous raid6 parity generation and recovery.  Part 2 [2]
covered the updates to the iop-adma driver to enable raid6.

A merge of these 3 topic series is available via the raid6 branch of
async_tx.git:

	git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/djbw/async_tx.git
raid6

The basic implementation of these patches have not changed much from
Yuri's previous release [3].  Instead this series has been rebased to
incorporate the modified async_tx/raid6 apis.  Note that the rework of
md/raid456 to move its async_tx parameter allocations from the stack to
the heap was included in commit 'md/raid5: add scribble region for
buffer lists' of Part 1 [4].  Current testing in the lab is passing, and
the code is ready for wider testing.

The 'raid6' branch will be placed in linux-next and if all goes well a
pull request may be sent towards the end of the 2.6.31 merge window.

Please review.

Thanks,
Dan
